Patty Patrick From Austria Writes Poems for Us

Another world-class poem written especially for you by our Internationally acclaimed Poet and friend Patty Patrick, for all our wonderful WHISNews21 visitors. We sincerely hope that you enjoy reading Patty’s poem’s as much as we are proud to publish her poem’s.

Pearl Of Wisdom

Although we do not really know what we want,

it takes up our whole energy.

And our operative hecticness

replaces the spiritual lull.

Where we are, nothing works!

But we cannot be everywhere!
